But commercial stations refuse to play anti-Tory hit single
A SONG condemning Theresa May as a “liar” hit number 10 in the official online charts over the weekend — but commercial stations are refusing to play it.
Capital FM and Heart both opted not to play the track, performed by Captain Ska, despite the fact its sales propelled it into the top 10.
The song has been available for download since last Friday.
In response to the radio ban Jake Painter from Captain Ska said: “This can only be seen as an attempt by the media owners to undermine public opinion.
“Thousands of people have downloaded this track and we demand that it is aired as any other song would be.
“We’ve written Liar Liar GE2017 for this general election because we want to do all we can to expose the horrific effects Tory policy has had on ordinary people.
“Theresa May lies her way through interview after interview without addressing the real issues. We’re sick of her and her party of millionaires privatising and cutting our public services while the rest of the country faces deteriorating living standards and poverty.
“The money is there to improve the lives of the majority but it’s in the hands of the wrong people.”
The track, which the band says has since soared to number two in the charts, is available to buy online with all money from sales up to June 8 being shared between foodbanks around the country and the People’s Assembly Against Austerity.
In another example of election censorship the NHS Singers, who pen songs against health cuts, were pulled off stage at Farnham festival in Surrey after singing their track Stand Up For The NHS.
The song’s chorus goes: “It’s not safe, it’s not fair, but they just don’t care, we did not sign up for this.”
The group also attacked Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt, whose South West Surrey constituency covers Farnham.
But as the group were about to launch into their second track, the host told them “we’re moving on, sorry guys” to boos from the crowd.
NHS singer and junior doctor Rishi Dhir claimed the “stage-managed censorship” and “media blackout” was because local Conservative councillor and mayor Mike Hodge did not like political songs.
‘did not like political songs’ … except, very probably, pro-Conservative songs. But are all seemingly pro-Conservative songs really pro-Conservative songs?
This 19 July 2016 music video from Britain is called The National Health Singers/NHS Choir – still got fighting spirit! Singing to the tune of ‘Eye of the tiger’.
It says about itself:
Fantastic rehearsal with the delectable Jenny Deacon!
We’re raising money and singing our hearts out for the NHS. The recent political upheaval continues to jeopardise our healthcare system. Please join us to sing and ensure ongoing awareness of this plight. We’re singing to save your NHS and we’re watching the government with the eyes of tigers!
It is said the Financial Times is read by those who own the country. ROB GRIFFITHS takes it to task over the accuracy of its reporting as well as politically reactionary agenda behind it: here.
